FUSION - Thanks Sponsors, Donors, Supporters and Volunteers for Event Support

On August 1, 2018, the 25th FUSION Annual auction was held at the Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way.   This fundraising event helps to provide the operational expenses needed to support homeless families in the Federal Way and Northeast Tacoma communities.  Approximately 650 guests attended this years event, raising $220,000 in support of our transitional housing program. We appreciate ALL of our sponsors for having such a giving heart! Thank you! You make a big difference in the lives of families facing homelessness.  A special thanks to our Principal Sponsors, HomeStreet Bank, CHI Franciscan Health, Schiewetz Group and HomeGoods, without your financial support this event would not have been possible. We wish to express a special thank you to our event chairs David Harrison and Michelle Dickerson. We value all our volunteers and wish to say thank you. This years event would not have gone as smoothly as it did without YOU!  Homelessness can be eliminated, one family at a time.  “Together we made a difference in reducing homelessness within our community!” Peace and blessings.    Peggy LaPorte,  FUSION Co-founder In the fall, FUSION will expand its capacity to serve 20 families at a time by purchasing a 20th transitional housing unit. These fully furnished residences provide transitional housing for families located in Federal Way and Northeast Tacoma. ###
